“We had good seafood here, unlike other reviews”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

We liked the look of this place, and hadn't done any research into restaurants in Fisherman's Village, so we took a chance on it. We ate on the beach, which was lovely. We had a seafood trio set menu and also spring rolls to start. The spring rolls were really good and so was the main. The trio included salmon, red snapper and barracuda. The salmon was the best of the 3. The sauces were ok, but the fish was good enough to eat without them.

We had a very pleasant and enjoyable meal here. If I had read the previous reviews before coming here, I would have stayed away, but we had a great meal, which hopefully wasn't a fluke.

“Great location, and that's about it.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014 via mobile

This place is right on the beach in Fishermen's Village and looks good. It is not. The staff are slow and not bothered and the food is really mediocre. Don't waste your money here when there is much better places around it.

“Stay Away, absolutely terrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant looks decent and we were kind of in a hurry — so we thought we'd give it a try.

We ordered lobster, some "giant shrimps" and a burger for our 3-year old.

The burger was completely raw inside, the lobster was both cold/frozen and burnt (they grill them), and the shrimps cold and tasteless.

If this was a random cheap reataurant I wouldn't spend time writing this, but it's SO expensive. We complained about the food and ended up arguing with the whole staff for 25 minutes, before we managed to get the check down from 3500 to 600 baht.

This was an unpleasant experience and I would recommend everyone to stay away from this place.

“Disaster”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

We went in because it looked nice and clean and thought with a french maitre d' this could only be good. WRONG!
We chose a set menu for 2 with bbq king prawns and red snapper. 2 of the 8 prawns were not cooked long enough aside from the fact that they weren't cleaned properly (which seems to happen quite often in Thailand - why they decide not to remove the veins is totally beyond me coz it just tastes awful). The 3 sauces they offer were stale...
On it went with a whole grilled red snapper. Can't remember having had a drier piece of fish...well...ever... How someone can massacre a fine fish like that with a bbq is beyond me. I can only imagine how they treat their beef in that place, or their lambchops for that matter...
I only give one point coz i have to (let's say it's for the beer...)
Avoid!
